Final MWC season begins today for BYU, Utah

Brigham Young and Utah begin their final softball seasons as members of the Mountain West Conference today at the Kajikawa Classic in Tempe.

The 16th-ranked Cougars and Utes open the tournament on opposite fields at the same time this afternoon (3:30 pm MT). BYU meets No. 14 Oregon of the Pac-10, while Utah opens against Ole Miss of the Southeastern Conference.

Later in the day, BYU takes on Big XII member Texas Tech at 6 pm MT.

All of the gametracker links for today's games can be found on the Kajikawa Classic web site.

BYU will leave the Mountain West and move to the WAC beginning in 2012. Utah will begin play in the newly-formed Pac-12 next season.
